Comments: Memories! Not just memories, but the letters give a good understanding of what these men and women felt about the war. First hand information--not form somebody else! A wealth of information. Just wish I had time to sit and read all the information. (By the way, I am old
enough to remember most of the writers)

Comments: What a treasure !!!!! What a wonderful wonderful man. I
have such special memories of the community house and Mr. Dorsey keeping all
of us kids in line. He was so beloved and respected. When I discovered the
letters at the library and held the letters that my dad wrote to Mr. Dorsey
in my hands, it was an emotional experience. How wonderful it is that Mr.
Dorsey insisted that the letters be kept in Sellersburg instead of the
Indiana Museum....but then again, that's the kind of person he was. The
library has done an excellent job and these letters are priceless. Thank you

Library Response: We do not have any photographs online. There are
photos in the collection of items we have. From what I have looked at, these
photos are not labeled so there is no way of telling you if the photo you
are looking for is here.

Comments: Don't ever let these letters disappear from the Internet! I
hope they are under lock and key at the library. I suppose they mean more to
me than to most because I remember most of the writers--and especially Mr.
